Found this lunch stop in the west end of Pearl Street in Boulder! Pasta Jays has a fabulous location open aired to the street, fun staff, fast service, delicious food & cold beer! We will return for another one of our favorite meals they offer at dinner time later this week!

We had a great dinner at pasta Jay's! The service was great. The food was good! We had a 3 month old baby with us and the wait staff stored our stroller for us which was convenient. We left impressed and would recommend this restaurant.

We were visiting Boulder and we tried Pasta Jay's on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Boulder. Service was very good, even on a busy Friday evening. The menu contained lots of variety. I tried the Bison Ravioli and my wife had seafood pasta shells. We were both pleased with our choices. The dinner salad was equally good.... More

This is a great location and a charming dining space. There are checkered table clothes and they open the giant windows to create "al fresco" seating. My sister said her pepperoni pizza tasted a little fishy. I originally ordered the pasta dish alla genovese because it appeared to be vegetarian but later when I spoke to the waitress she informed...

We arrived at about 6:45 on Friday night - very crowded and tiny place. We got a good table right in the front open-air window. Wait staff was excellent. Food was delicious.

Pasta Jay's has quite a history and it boasts a loyal clientele. We enjoyed our meal, the portions are really generous, and the service was good. I especially enjoyed the open air feeling inside as the windows open up onto the outdoor seating area.

I am a local and should have known better. Brought my out of town guests for a late dinner on Pearl street last night and it was a disaster from the minute we got to the door. The restaurant was nearly empty, but we waited at the door ten minutes while staff stood around talking with each other at the... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. They were pretty busy, but got seated right away. Food was a good value and had excellent flavor.

Had dinner with a group of friends in Boulder at Pasta Jays. House wine was very nice. Had spag that was very good and a great value at 7$. Atmosphere was aok, but I can see this place being a little loud - if you want a quiet romantic place for 2 - probably not the right spot - Food... More
